Sample text

A similar approach is evident in the equally legendary American case of MacPherson v Buick Motor Co. in which Justice Cardozo held that where a manufacturer negligently produces a defective car that injures the person who purchased it from the dealer, the manufacturer is liable to that person despite the absence of a contract between them and the person injured. The plaintiff in a negligence action is required to prove that the defendant’s conduct actually caused his injury or damage. It is often the case, however, that the relationship between cause and effect is too remote.

The idea is based on the principle 32 ‘stare decisis’ (‘let the decision stand’). It is, of course, designed to promote the stability and predictability of the law, as well as ensuring that like cases are, as far as possible, treated alike. Every common law jurisdiction has its distinctive hierarchy of courts, and the doctrine of precedent requires courts to follow the decisions of courts higher up the totem pole. In doing so, however, the lower court need follow only the reasoning employed by the higher tribunal in reaching its decision – the so-called ratio decidendi.

18 Chinese law Traditional Chinese society, in common with other Confucian civilizations, did not develop a system of law founded by the ideas that underlie Western legal systems. Confucianism adopted the concept of ‘li’: an intense opposition to any system of fixed rules that applied universally and equally. Though Chinese ‘legalists’ sought to undermine the political authority of this Confucian philosophy of persuasion by championing ‘rule by law’ (‘fa’) in place of the organic order of the Confucian ‘li’, the latter continues to dominate China.
